and appointing her as part of the irs obama care role. the social contract between the people who pay taxes and the government has been broken by this scandal. is the president capable of fixing it? >> i think that is the issue here, we have a serious trust issue and the president is trying to distance himself and because it is happening in the walls of the white house, that he is immune from the blame. but theis, he sets the tone for the sxhrgz the massive big government and regulatory state, it is his responsibility. he has a lot of healing to do with the american people who say i will not give bonuses to these people. i don't think a burrcrat in cincinnati woke up and said i will go after the tea party group. >> that is an interesting point and stephen miller who was under the grill spoke to this point. we have a sound bite where whether it was mismanagement or partisanship. >> i don't believe that partis anship motivated the people engaged in the practices described in the attorney general report. >> this is a definition of partisanship. when you single people out on the basis of their

, the affect of scandal is to empower the hard line in each party. obama is going to find it tougher, i think, to find deals to alienation some of the congressional democrats and on the other side, you're going to see the voices get louder inside the gop who say the president is bleeding. we don't want to throw him life lines with agreements. that could be a short-sighted view for the republicans. the net may not be a positive by 2016. >> i want to talk about the obama economy. this is what it looks like now. the labor force participation rate, 63.3%. it comes up just 2% in the past year. 5% over the past two years. big blah. overall, the economy grew 2.5% in the first three months of the year, but the deficit is dropping. plunged 32% in the first half of the fiscal year. housing is improving. prices are rising in most areas. consumer confidence, we learned late this week, lm at a six-year high. stocks, i don't have to tell you. most of the people in washington have a 401(k), so they're very well aware what is happening in the stock market. here is my question, ron, i want ron to answer this.

, this irs scandal that president obama discussed today while standing next to david cameron in the white house. the scandal is about how the irs handled that huge influx of new organizations applying for tax exempt status while also engaged in some degree of political activity under this farcical part of the tax code. starting friday, reports have surfaced that the irs and handling these types of claims singled out groups that had the word tea party or word patriots in their name. and while that might reasonably be a way to find groups that were actually mostly interested in political activity rather than social welfare, it is not fair to apply extra irs scrutiny and questioning to those groups who are obviously engaged in political activity on the right if you are not also applying that scrutiny to groups who are engaged in political activity on the left. it is the imbalance, right? and thus far, we have no evidence that they were applying equal scrutiny to groups on the left side of the ideological spectrum. the irs official who on friday apologized for this targeting of conservative g

. the inconvenient truth about benghazi, the genesis of the scandal, it looks to me like this. the obama white house sees every event as a political event. it could not tolerate the idea that the armed assault on the ben g benghazi consulate was a premeditated act of islamist terrorism. that would carry a whole world of political implications and demand certain actions and the american presidential election was only eight weeks away. they wanted this problem to go away or at least to bleed the meaning from it. governor, why is that not a convincing way to analyze benghazi? >> no, i think that's right. i think that the obama white house wanted to spin this in the least damaging way possible. but i think you made it a very good point when you said, look, let's look at what happened that led to the deaths of the american people. i think the spin post incident, the american people, aren't going to give two hoots about it. they're going to give it the parties playing the blame game. but i do think it's a legitimate inquiry why the system broke down, why the warning signals that were sent weren't responde

's the spokesman for the president of the united states. is the obama administration's credibility shot? and the bigger question really is benghazi is not just an aberration in my view or really a scandal. benghazi is obama's foreign policy. intervene but then don't do anything. lead from behind so passivity that led to the attack on 9/11. then the president's absence the whole night of the crisis. then they evade responsibility and deceive the american people and that pattern is not limited to that one instance in benghazi. >> congressman kucinich, i think it's fair to say you're a liberal democrat. does it bother you that the cia, as we now know, originally wrote about links to al qaeda, originally wrote about having warned the state department for months about threats in benghazi and that all of that was taken out and let's put this up on the screen. state department official victoria nuland wrote in pushing back against what the cia had had had written that information could be abused by members of congress to beat up the state department for not paying attention to 0 warnings so wh

't think that there is a big scandal here, and i think the fact that obama today he made a very good point today when he mentioned in his press conference the testimony of his counterterrorism adviser matthew olsen who went up to the hill just three days after susan rice's infamous television appearances and said we think this is an act of terror. now the heart of the republican case against the administration here is that they were hiding the fact that this was an act of terror for electoral reasons because of the campaign season. but here was the president going up and telling a committee of democrats and republicans that it was an act of terror. that is not hide going to you ask me. >> the heart of their accusations it keeps getting heart transplants. the president left these people to die then the testimony that they gun to forget about now and now back to the memo thing revised many times. were you surprised to hear congressman issa accuse the former c.i.a. director david petraeus of saying what the administration wanted him to say, and saying that ambassador pickering was only hearin

that the irs scandal, what's happening with benghazi, this is overshadowing what the obama administration is trying to accomplish in congress, trying to move forward on some major issues where perhaps we thought there would be some bipartisan compromise. i think particularly on the irs there has got to be some answer got to move the obama forward with health care implementation and they are trying to do so. the irs is at the forefront of that. if the irs needs more federal funding in order to do that, in this environment i think good luck. there's not a politician in their right mind who is75h?da/ o defend the irs forcefully on a good day. i don't think there are too many good days in the near future for the irs. >> let me ask you about benghazi and i'm going to talk to common peter king about this as well. nancy pelosi has been a staunch supporter of this administration. she seems to say we shouldn't, as she said, soak up all of congressional attention on this. when you hear a mom like that, who doesn't have her mom on mother's day, and you also hear hillary rodham clinton saying, enoug
